In 1917, almost 90 years before Viagra became a billion dollar mainstream business, one Kansas doctor believed that he could cure impotence by transplanting goat testicles into men. Yes, you read that correctly. Go ahead, take a moment to let it sink in.
During Depression-era America, John Romulus Brinkley transplanted thousands of goat testicles into willing patients, amassed an enormous fortune, was (sort of) elected Governor of Kansas, invented the infomercial, and built the world’s most powerful radio station, all while generally annoying the hell out of The Establishment.
Borrowing a page from Brinkley, filmmaker Penny Lane (OUR NIXON) masterfully charms us into believing the unbelievable, building our trust and excitement, until the final chapter bares the painful truth and reveals the doctor for what he truly was (I won’t spoil it here).
Today, Cartuna globally releases the deluxe edition of NUTS! on BitTorrent, which includes the Sundance Award winning documentary, an exclusive archive of Brinkley’s XERA recordings, a collection of Brinkley’s infomercials and home videos, original prints of Brinkley propaganda materials and FCC complaints against Doctor John Brinkley.
Charlatan or true believer, entrepreneur or opportunist, NUTS! is the story of a true American dreamer.
